Cancer Patients and Nutrition Response Testing

Nutritional support as an aid in boosting immune response in cancer patients, along with minimizing the immune and white blood cell suppression that occurs with most chemotherapeutic agents, has been receiving greater attention.

UCLA’s Oncology Department reported gratifying results utilizing nutrition and supplements combined with acupuncture.acupuncture for cancer patients

All cancer patients in our clinic receive Nutrition Response Testing to determine the most pressing issues of their bodies. Often, damages in the small and large intestines come up as No. 1 priority.

Toxemia caused by heavy-metal exposure and strong medications also show up as extremely important issues to deal with. Other prominently damaged organs/glands through cancer treatments are found to be the liver, thyroid glands, and the spinal structure.

If you or your loved ones have cancer and undergo cancer treatments, please call our office today at 201.760.8811.

Ulcerative Colitis – Treating with Nutrition Response Testing

We have successfully treated a number of patients with chronic ulcerative colitis, diverticulitis (caused by small pouches of inflammation in the large intestines), and other irritable bowel syndromes with nutrition response testing.

All patients were instructed to stay away from three No-No: Wheat, Sugar, and Dairy Products.

Sometimes, the major cause of ulcerative colitis was found to be over-growth of particular bacteria strains in the liver; at other times, the kidneys overloaded with chemical toxins were the underlying reason for ulcerative colitis. Most patients also demonstrated weakness of the thyroid glands, the thymus glands, and the stomach and spleen.

Although it takes some time to see marked improvement, some patients responded almost immediately with just two supplements: standard process’ Zymex and Spanish Black Radish.

Other supplements we typically recommend for the bowel-related diseases are: Multizime, Spleen PMG, Gastrex, Livaplex, and Thymex—all from standard process. We also incorporate certain Chinese herbal remedies and acupuncture in nutrition response testing when it comes to ulcerative colitis.

If you or your loved ones demonstrate symptoms of ulcerative colitisis and other bowel-related diseases, please call us at 201.760.8811

Ulcerative Colitis Medical Options

According to western medicine, ulcerative colitis is a chronic non-specific idiopathic gastrointestinal inflammatory disease. Several etiologic factors have been suggested, but none are proven at the present time. Since there is no known cause, specific therapy is not available and all available drug treatment focus on symptomatic relief. Surgery cures the disease but will require permanent ileostomy (cutting off a portion of the large intestines) in addition to physical and emotional burden.

Most common medications to treat ulcerative colitis include: Aminosalicylates, Sulfasalazine (Azulfidine), Mesalamine (Asacol, Rowasa), Balsalazide disodium (Colazal), Corticosteroids (such as budesonide, prednisone, and prednisolone). In addition, immune system suppressors, nicotine patches, anti-diarrheal medications are often used.

Surgical Procedures

20 to 30% of people with ulcerative colitis must eventually have their colon or colon and rectum removed (colectomy or proctocolectomy) because of massive bleeding, severe illness, rupture of the colon, or the risk of cancer.  Although the surgery often eliminates the disease, it may result in having 5 to 7 watery bowel movements a day, and up to one-third of people who undergo this procedure develop pouchitis, an inflammation of the pouch that was created to reconnect the severed intestines to the rectum.

Nutrition and Skin Conditions

Here at Allendale Acupuncture and Nutrition Clinic, we’ve treated a number of skin conditions including extremely dry skin, eczema, acnes, and hives.

With applied kinesiology, we’ve found that the deep causes of these conditions are usually the combination effects of toxins in the intestines, pathogens spread throughout the body, and food intolerance. Since each patient displays different pathological syndromes, it’s difficult to generalize.

However, the most important thing any patients with skin conditions must do is: stay away from wheat and sugar. Wheat produced by GMOs tends to create toxic-environments in both small and large intestines; sugar seems to be biggest culprit in helping yeast, fungus, and mold flourish.

Through a systemic approach integrating diet changes, food-based-natural supplements, and some homeopathic aids, most skin conditions demonstrate dramatic improvements.
